Students, staff and Governors at The Kings of Wessex Academy ended the Spring Term together on a celebratory note with the whole school assembly. Perhaps due to the rarity of such big special occasions. Perhaps due to the large numbers gathered; but it was quite a spectacle to see everyone together in the Sports Hall following the separate House assemblies earlier that afternoon.
With the lighter and longer days, budding plants and flowers of early spring and a sense of anticipation in the air, in the final week of the Spring Term students at The Kings of Wessex Academy went to church in the four Houses for the Easter services. The Vicar of St Andrew’s Church Rev. Stuart Burns, with Christian Leader Elizabeth Alden and Rev. John Angle shared the Easter message of Jesus’ final days on earth and his suffering at the cross because of his love for mankind.
The last Monday evening of March (25/3/19) saw the culmination of months of speech-writing and rehearsing ready for the Gabblers after dinner speaking competition in Bristol for Year 12 students.
A group of keen Years 9 and 10 netball girls from The Kings of Wessex Academy recently tested their skills and learned some new skills at a Netball Development Day at Bath University with Subject Leader for P.E. Mr Bennett and Teacher of P.E. Miss Manley.
The road from Cheddar to London was well travelled last week when the Kings Sports Academy had three day trips competing in The Rosslyn Park National Schools Sevens competitions when the Kings’ Under 18 girls ultimately took the trophy as the Plate Competition winners!
